Project description

New polymer- and plant- functionalized coatings will be fabricated. Porous inorganic nanoparticles will be also added to this polymer matrix to obtain coatings antibacterial coatings with dual functionality – natural plant and remote temperature activation. With developed knowledge, these coatings should be feasible to fabricate even in a low-tech environment, yet, they are self-cleaning antibacterial coatings, tissue engineering, and hospitals.
